Any band that calls themselves ‘The Killers’ is gonna be dangerous.
Being from Iowa, I can tell you that Vegas is not normal.
I considered moving to New York or Los Angeles, but they’re two of the hardest places to move to when you’re just starting out in a band.
I love heavy music, but you see, I had fallen in love with a radio station in Vegas that played nothing but Eighties music. That had a real profound impact on me.
I went to college in Iowa for a little bit and tried to get some bands together there. That was about a year of my life.
I’m not a big fan of cold weather; that’s why I moved to Vegas!
That’s the perfect audience: singing along to every word, knowing the songs, appreciating the non-hit songs, stuff like that.
